History

In 1902, the Arizona Eastern Railway asked for donations of right of way in order to build a railroad between Phoenix and Florence. The one who provided this land was William “Bobby” Gilbert. Thanks to him, a small town named Gilbert was established. And yes, it was obviously named after him.

This town’s main economy was centered on agriculture. In fact, from 1911 to 1920s, Gilbert was known as the “Hay Capital of the World”. 

Gilbert was incorporated as a town on July 6, 1920. Presently, this place is now booming with residential, business and commercial areas.

Area and Lifestyle

Gilbert is one of the towns located in urban Phoenix. Interestingly, this town can be compared to a city due to its rather big population along with some modern amenities found here locally. 

When it comes to food-Trippin’, there are dozens of great eats here like the Barrio Queen and Zinburger. Joyride Taco House features mouthwatering Mexican dishes that will definitely make you come back for more. They also serve some cocktails and cold drinks that goes better with a plate of tasty tacos.

Get your favorite breakfast food at the Snooze, an A.M Eatery. Here, you’ll find a couple of seasonal menu of delicious breakfast and lunch fare plus cocktails. For some good old pizza and pasta, head down to Pomo Pizzeria Napoletana.

These are just some of the must-try restaurants here at Gilbert. There are plenty more to check out. It’s the same reason why in 2014, this town was named as “one of the hottest dining mini-hubs in the Valley” by the Phoenix New Times.
